Today I Went to the K Mart on Cypress Gardens Boulevard in Winter Haven

Central Florida is a world filled with old white people. It's like looking in the mirror. I don't recommend it. I've always said that working among college students makes me feel old, and to a degree it does.

But this.

Let me revise. Working among college students doesn't make me feel old; it makes me wish I were young. That is a much better state of mind -- in some ways forward looking, for the young do tend to drag you along in their wake, like a water skier whose shouts to slow down are ignored and who is secretly glad.
